I'm on NTL cable broadband and have just implemented wireless network successfully.

You do not want the ADSL routers, just go for the Cable modem routers.

I was thinking of 802.11g only, but decided to pay the premium and go for pre-N MIMO, especially as that would enable me to not just cover the house but also the garden (now that summer will be coming! :-) with just one router.

I got the Belkin pre-N F5D8230 wireless modem.
For the client PCs, I initially bought the Belkin F5D8000 (which is a PCI Bus Adapter to house a notebook PCMCIA card ~ F5D8010).
However, there was a conflict with my newest PC's MCI motherboard and I could not install successfully.
I then installed a slightly more expensive pre-N MIMO PCI adapter successfully (Linksys WPC54GX). This had an external aerial and achieved full (100%) 108Mbps throughput consistently, both ways.
The Belkin F5D8000 installed on another PC only managed 80+% and sometimes dropped below this quite considerably.

Even my laptop's standard 802.11g wireless got very good reception at the very bottom of my long garden.

As I had elected to run with the higher security WPA, I also got a D-Link DWL-G122 USB 802.11g adapter (not many USB adapters caters for WPA, just WEP). This performed better then my laptop's built-in 802.11g. Not surprising, as the USB adapter is held vertically, aligning with the router's vertical aerials. And can be positioned for line-of-sight to the router.

I reckon that with careful positioning of the router and client PCs for radio reception and transmission, standard 802.11g kit would do very well within a house.
My experience shows it really pays to have an adapter which enables you to attach a separate aerial, away from the bottom of the PC and tangle of wires, into clear radio space.

Check out the Networking Forum; loads of excellent threads posted there for wireless networking.
